Biodiversity Days 2024: Family Nature Walk at UBC Botanical Garden

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm


This event is a part of series of events taking place during Biodiversity Days – a month-long event in May honouring the International Day for Biological Diversity (May 22). Biodiversity days is a series of engagement opportunities that aim to celebrate and raise awareness of the fragile species, genes and ecosystems that sustain our communities.

Join us for a biodiversity adventure and connect with plants, pollinators and trees through a self-guided nature experience in the beautiful UBC Botanical Garden! Fun for the whole family!

This children-oriented event will take your family ~2 hours and includes a self-guided journey through UBC Botanical Garden and the GreenHeart Treewalk to find the pop-up education stations in the Garden. Activities at the stations will include exploring the forest gardens, discovering food plants, taking time to watch for birds and pollinators and learning about the cycles that sustain our ecosystem.

When: Saturday, May 18th 2024

Location: UBC Botanical Garden, 6408 SW Marine Dr, Vancouver BC
